He was cycling to Redbridge Community School at the time of the incident, which left him "worried" about going back to school.

The suspect was seen arguing with a woman before lashing out at her car.

He then turned on Alfie and demanded his bike at knifepoint.

Officers have since confirmed no arrests have been made and enquiries continue.

Anyone with information about who the boy is or where he may be can call the force on 101, report online or contact Crimestoppers anonymously via 0800 555 111 quoting 44220208134.

The suspect was wearing a balaclava, aged between 15 and 16, white, slim and was around 5ft 8ins tall.
